"EFFI CYCLE" derived from Efficient-Cycle promote the objective of providing opportunity to the students to conceive, design and fabricate a three wheel configuration vehicle powered by human-electric hybrid power and capable of seating two passengers catering to the day to day mobility needs. The vehicle must be aerodynamic, engineered for performance & safety and ergonomically designed. The objective is to promote innovation and generate consciousness amongst the young engineers towards environment friendly mobility solution.
My Dear Students,
You have been out of track events of Efficycle since 2020, we did virtual Efficycle last year and waited to get this pandemic over so that we all can hit our Efficycle tracks with our adventurous designs and futuristic technology infusion. Wait is now over! We are going to have physical Efficycle once again.
We are now in new India where we are acknowledged, referred and our opinion matters. In this changing India you must contribute in your own way. SAENIS Efficycle gives you that platform to spread your wings and soar high. With this intent we have enhanced the challenge so that our country could benefit with your design ideas in a large way. By switching Efficycle to Electric Powered Efficycle – EFFI QUE EV mobility is catching up in India, in 2021, 3,29,190 electric vehicles were sold in India, representing a 168 per cent increase over last year's sales. With a combined market share of 90%, 2-Wheelers and low-speed L3 Category 3-Wheelers are the most popular electric vehicles. However, making affordable long range Motor cars are still a challenge. SAENIS wish this challenge to be taken up by you , design and fabricate a 4-wheeled affordable, durable and safer Electric mobility solution.
Participate in Effi-Que, to hon your skills and challenge your dreams. I expect more and more participation in Efficycle and present us with best ideas and innovation. I believe that the blend of technology with innovation will give birth to new ideas that will form the future.
Enhanced power and conventional Efficycle are still mainstream competition, Participate and learn something new, do some application Engineering and gain experiential learning.
I wish all the teams very best; Organizing Committee should put in their best with support from Industry and Technology partners. Make this year's SAENIS Efficycle event a Grand success.
With Best Regards,

The past two years have been tough for everyone, As the saying "Tough times don't last long, but tough people do", this tough time also challenged everyone to fight and bring out their best.. Who could have imagined that physical events like Efficycle can be conducted through virtual mode. With the support from everyone, the 11th & 12th seasons of Effi-Cycle event were successfully conducted through virtual mode even during the pandemic. Based on the improved COVID-19 situation ,the Organizing Committee has proposed for a physical event this year to reignite the true spirit of Effi-Cycle. The registrations will happen online & taking into consideration the covid protocols, we plan to reduce physical interacts by handling some activities through virtual mode like: explanation of the rule book, inspection by mentors, technical & cost presentations. On the other hand, to keep alive the thrill of innovation, last year we had introduced a new concept of: (Effi-Que) The 4W Full Electric Quadri-cycle for urban, efficient & Smart Mobility. This new dimension that had been added for the first time to Effi-Cyle under the aegis of entrepreneurship will now be a reality this season.
This year, we plan to make the event even more grand by introducing new technical challenges, increasing award categories with award amounts. Special participation incentives have been planned for all female participating teams & teams who can prove their engineering skills at the event.
Previous alumni & new mentors from industry and academia are collaborating to foster the co-learning environment & are taking Effi-Cycle to the next level. We believe the 13th season of Effi-Cycle will be safer, full of excitement & will bring the spirit of entrepreneurship among the young engineers. Let's come together to make the 13th season of Effi-Cycle a grand success.
I wish all the best to the Participants, Colleges, Event Organizers and Contributors.
